Ben Affleck Thanks Academy at Critics’ Choice Awards for Best Director Win
It’s awards season. Yesterday (Jan 9) was the People’s Choice Awards where the people voted on their favorite actors and actresses in the arts and today (Jan 10) is the Critics’ Choice Movie Awards, the awards show that honors the best movies from the past year, as chosen by the Broadcast Film Critics Association.
Ben Affleck was completely overlooked when it came to being nominated for Best Director for the Academy Awards. Although, the actor vied for the nomination, it didn’t happen. Thankfully, the Critics’ Choice nominated Ben Affleck for Best Director for the movie Argo, where he won!
Affleck received a standing ovation for the win he said,
“I would like to thank the Academy. I’m kidding, I’m kidding. This is the one that counts. No, I do want to thank the Broadcast Film Critics Association. It is very, very cool for me. There was a time when the Ben Affleck’s Critics’ Award was a ‘Saturday Night Live’ sketch.”
It was a big night for Affleck, as the movie Argo also won Best Picture.
What do you think about Affleck’s acceptance speech? Do you think he should have been nominated for an Academy Award?
